projector design, still far 
ahead of contemporary 
equipment. Latest addi- 
tions include SUPA 
PHONIC sound heads and 
additional amplifier and 
ancillary equipment for 
complete presentation of 
CinemaScope films. The 
SUPA MARK 2 projector, 
for use in medium-sized 
and smaller theatres, can 
also be adapted for Cinema- 
Scope presentation. BTH 
have developed a high 
power, 105 amp., arc 
lantern especially for use 
on wide screen presenta- 
tion ; these can be supplied 
for separate sale. 



BTH also manufacture the leading British 
16mm. sound or silent film projector, Type 
401. Because of its brilliant and steady 
picture, fidelity of sound, and ease of operation 
it has proved the ideal choice for schools,
